Opal has long been linked with hope, creativity, friendship and seasonal abundance as well as believed to have healing powers.
In the Middle Ages, however, it was prized by royalty as well as being believed to grant invisibility when wrapped in a bay leaf, so became the patron gemstone of thieves!
Opal is supposed to have come from the Sanskrit upala meaning jewel, and it has always been a precious gem, and part of its perceived high value comes from the ability of opal to reflect many colours, and in Greek opallios means play of colour.
Here the image is applied to our wonderful tyon accessories that add a whole fresh and attractive dimension to any outfit - whether going out for a meal, a walk, or on holiday.
You can tie them around your head as a bandana, hold a pony tail in place, knot them around your neck, wrap them around your wrist, hang them from a belt, and tie them onto a tote, handbag or luggage. The list goes on.
They are 85% modal (a natural product made from beech tree resin) and 15% silk, so are lightweight and 'floaty', look and feel silky, yet have a comforting texture and warmth.
We're thoroughly pleased with the fabric mix, and are confident you will be too.
But please note, these are one metre long and 40 cms wide (a few inches over 3 feet by one foot in old money), so are an excellently flexible size, but are not 'big'.
